I'm gonna resume coding on Enter next week, since I realized there is still a need for an alternative login manager.
I'll keep you posted on the progress
Around 60% of the refactoring before 0.2 is finished. What we've got so far is a brand new theme engine, new GUI handling and in the near future the authentication routines will be added.
Right now the code is lacking some key features to be able to release it. But when all pieces are put to place a pre-release will get uploaded
The last few months have been busy and as a result, enter hasn't seen as much improvements. But, at the time of writing, about 40% of the code has been rewritten and I hope to be able to release something soon. The next release will probably jump to 0.2.
Please continue to send in bug reports, they are always welcome!
Enter needs a new architecture in order to fully support PAM and proper privilege separation. Therefore there hasn't been any active development in the main trunk, instead a large scale refactoring of the whole software has been underway. Roughly 1/4th is complete at this stage.
The immediate benefits will be internationalization, code documented with Doxygen, testcases and a better architecture.
This will later make the implementation of privilege separation and PAM a lot smoother.
The new release, when it arrives, will of course sport a new theme as well!
A lot of restructuring has been going on since 0.0.9. PAM required a lot of changes to be made, so hopefully the transition will go a lot smoother when the time comes. Right now I'm focusing on cleaning up the code so 0.1 can be released.
The next release will, if everything goes as planned, be released by next month.
The 0.1 release has been delayed since I tried to get PAM working with it. It seems like a lot of work needs to be done before PAM support will be included with Enter.
If you have any experience with PAM, I would greatly appreciate any help.
PAM will therefore be scheduled for 0.2 as previously stated. And hopefully, 0.1 will be released soon.
The 0.1 release will also mark the move up to beta stage, from the current alpha stage.
A plea goes out to the people who thinks this project could be useful, help me implement PAM support in Enter.
With this brand new release Enter uses two separate auth files, one for the server and one for the user, which gives much better security. Enter can also specify which security protocol to use at run-time.
Hope you'll like it!
After some `hard' work, Enter 0.0.8 was finally released. This new release is sporting MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 authentication support.
Also, some fixes to the GUI code, and a new default theme was introduced!
What do you think about it?
After the holidays I finally picked up on Enter again. And soon, hopefully, there will be a new release.
A lot of changes has gone into the new code, most notably a new default theme. There will also be support for MIT cookies, and some GUI cleanups!
If you want to help, you can always download the SVN sources, any comments will be greatly appreciated.
If everything goes as planned, there will soon be a 0.1 release!
Every comment/suggestion/bug report is highly appreciated, so please don't hesitate!
This version of enter now kills all client windows after a user session. I have added manuals for `enter' as well as the configuration file `enter.conf'. And of course the various code cleanups and bug fixes!
